Colts reportedly working on deal to make Josh McDaniels new head coach

Josh McDaniels

McDaniels and Colts general manager Chris Ballard share the same agent and are said to have a good relationship. He was previously a head coach with the Denver Broncos from 2009-10. As explained in a 2016 story by Dan Pompei for Bleacher Report, the now-extensive document, titled "lessonslearned" highlights everything McDaniels learned in his brief time as a head coach, and what he'd do differently when given the opportunity again.

Linebackers coach and passing game coordinator Matt Eberflus is expected to join Josh McDaniels in Indianapolis, according to an NFL Media report.

While these two rumors seem to be close to done deals, at least as close to done as rumors can be, right now all Patricia, McDaniels and the Patriots are exclusively focusing on is a trip to the Super Bowl in three weeks.

Since the first of the year, the search has been on to find the next head coach for the team.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported McDaniels is a "favorite" to land the Tennessee Titans' job after Mike Mularkey's firing Monday. "I want somebody who wants to build something special and build a team that's special, and if a candidate is coming here just for Andrew, then he's probably not going to be the right fit". That kind of system has worked well enough for the Patriots to win two Super Bowls in the last three years.

The Colts can't officially offer the job or hire McDaniels until the Patriots season comes to an end.
